We stopped here on our way to the Eastern region. Even though it is just outside of Accra, the weather was different. The trees here were amazing. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the vegetation. The buildings could use some maintenance.

We visited on Boxing Day (2018) and enjoyed the wander around (you need a guide, but he was worth it). Plenty of Ghanaians out for the day picnicing and partying to the usual thunderous music beat that accompanies everything.

Aburi is always an escape from the heat and buzzle of the town, up on the hill with really beautiful trees and lawns. Just, especially on the weekends, loudspeakers and big groups littering the place and operating on high noise levels continue invading the place....More
